Sept. 23, 2012 – PRLog — Slip and fall injuries are some of the most common injuries in the United States. Over one million people are injured in a slip and fall accident each year. Out of these, around 17,000 people will die. It has been estimated that the average slip and fall injury will cost an initial $28,000.00 and another $46,000.00 of indirect costs.
When a person slips and falls, their case will usually be in a category called premise liability. Premise liability means that someone is injured on another person’s property and because that person owns or maintains such property, that person may be held liable for damages.
It is the injured person’s responsibility to show the other person was a fault in a slip and fall case. One of the main keys in slip and fall cases is ensuring that the situation which caused the fall was not open and obvious. This question is of key importance because an affirmative answer could place liability on the injured party. A dangerous condition is “open and obvious” when a reasonable person in the same situation would have seen the dangerous condition and avoided it.
It is imperative that you contact Kim Parker. Your failure to immediately contact a competent attorney could lead to the destruction of pertinent evidence, such as video of the incident. Contact Kim today to discuss your options.
